Historic $1 Billion Verdict for Fatal Truck Accident
A jury reached a verdict of over $1 billion for two Pajcic & Pajcic clients, sending a powerful message about dangerous and reckless trucking companies.
Two truckers who were distracted behind the wheel caused the death of an 18-year-old stellar college freshman on the brink of his adult life. The $102 million compensatory award to Connor Dzion’s parents for pain and suffering proved that the jury understood the full extent of their loss. The separate $900 million punitive damage determination for the negligent employment of a dangerous driver was a clear message to the trucking industry to stop putting reckless drivers on the roadways.
